Rumor: 2016 Star Wars Spin-Off Movie Plot Revealed

star wars spin off

This morning, our scoop about the theatrical placement of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was confirmed. Now, we have another Star Wars scoop for you.

Recently, we learned a juicy rumor about the plot to Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta‘s 2016 Star Wars spin off movie. The information came second hand from a single good source, so we began to dig. All we wanted was one more person to tell us we were on the right track. Literally dozens of people were contacted at all levels and while there were a few nibbles, we could never get a solid second confirmation. We contacted Lucasfilm, which declined to comment. So for that reason, take this story with a grain of salt and a huge rumor label.

That said, we think there is enough evidence to present you a rumored plot of the 2016 Star Wars spin off movie.

Star Wars ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

We haven’t really featured many of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos on the site because we try to cover entertainment news and rumors but not celebrity. And I’m sure you’ve seen enough of these ice bucket challenge videos in your social timeline already. The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised nearly $80 million for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord) which is amazing. I personally have not done the challenge but have instead donated to the ALS association, and I highly recommend you do the same (and if you have time, learn a bit about the disease). Recently the Star Wars galaxy has been called upon to take the Ice Bucket challenge, which has seen responses from Harrison Ford, Mark Hammil, Peter Mayhew, new Star Wars Episode VII castmembers Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Star Wars Episode 7director JJ Abrams, as well as future Star Wars series filmmaker Gareth Edwards, and more. Other members of the crew have yet to respond to the challenge. Watch all of the Star Wars ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos embedded after the jump.
